Arraignment continued for bullying suspect

22-year-old Harley Branham continued her not guilty plea Wednesday morning and waived formal reading of her arraignment.

An arraignment for a Fayette woman charged with several counts relating to the bullying of a former employee has been continued.

According to the attorney for Harley Branham, 22, the reading of her arraignment was waived Wednesday morning and she continued her plea of not guilty in the case involving a former Glasgow Dairy Queen employee who took his own life after allegedly being bullied at school and work. Branham was the supervisor of Kenneth Suttner, 17, who killed himself in December.

Branham, who allegedly contributed to the death of Suttner by bullying him at work, is charged with Aggravated Stalking, two counts of Third-Degree Assault, and two counts of Harassment. Charges of Involuntary Manslaughter were dropped in January.

A status hearing is scheduled for May 16 at the Howard County Courthouse.
